Quinn Uses Veto to Push Voter Privacy in Primaries
(Chicago Sun Times) — Illinois voters would no longer have to declare their party in a primary election under a surprise amendatory veto Gov. Quinn issued Tuesday. Under new rules pushed by Quinn, voters would be handed the ballots of Republicans, Democrats and whatever other parties have primary contests. Voters then would privately choose which ballot to fill out. No one but the voter would know which party’s primary they voted in. Voters would not be able to vote in more than one party’s primary.
